High-speed fibre optic Infrared transmitter

Omega Engineering has introduced a high-speed industrial fibre optic infrared transmitter and probe system - the OS4000 - which offers a variety of new measurement capabilities. The unit can have an optical field of view or spot size as small as 0.6mm, which is less than half the size typically available.

 It also has a response time as fast as 1 msec. It is designed for use in high-temperature applications where a direct measurement of the part temperature is critical to success.
This type of probe offers one of the most effective methods of making non-contact high temperature measurements in industrial applications.

The OS4000 covers a temperature range of 100 to 1600°C with sampling rates ranging from 1 msec up to 3.2 seconds. The unit also offers Peak & Hold function with an adjustable holding time. The optical field of view ranges from 5.6mm to a very small 0.64mm. This is the smallest spot size available on a standard product, and a customised version can go as low as 0.25mm spot size.

Combined with the high sampling rate, the small spot size can catch transient temperature variations that would otherwise go undetected or closely track the temperature of very small objects such as wire strands or small diameter drill bits.
